emoticon For me the best way to lose weight is to use the nutrition tracker. It gives me a clear picture of what I have eaten and what I can still have toward the end of the day. An even simpler approach would be to follow the meals that Spark People plans for you.

What is SCAD deficiency?



Short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (SCAD) deficiency is a condition that prevents the body from converting certain fats into energy, especially during periods without food (fasting).

Signs and symptoms of SCAD deficiency may appear during infancy or early childhood and can include vomiting, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), a lack of energy (lethargy), poor feeding, and failure to gain weight and grow at the expected rate (failure to thrive). Other features of this disorder may include poor muscle tone (hypotonia), seizures, developmental delay, and a small head size (microcephaly).

The symptoms of SCAD deficiency may be triggered by fasting or illnesses such as viral infections. This disorder is sometimes mistaken for Reye syndrome, a severe condition that may develop in children while they appear to be recovering from viral infections such as chicken pox or flu. Most cases of Reye syndrome are associated with the use of aspirin during these viral infections.

In some people with SCAD deficiency, signs and symptoms do not appear until adulthood. These individuals are more likely to have problems related to muscle weakness and wasting.

The severity of this condition varies widely, even among members of the same family. Some individuals with SCAD deficiency never develop any symptoms of the condition.


The race to fitness is unending for when you reach your goals, it becomes a race to stay ahead of the temptations that seek to pull back to where you came from!

Hello there, I'm from New Zealand and need to lose weight following the diagnosis of a heart attack caused by SCAD. All my levels are fine but I am a bit over weight so really want to reduce my risk of another HA by losing weight. I want simple, easy to follow instructions that don't take much time as I work nearly full time. Any suggestions?
